I believe it was sometime during the winter of 1980 that I received a call from director John Landis. It had been snowing but hadn’t settled, I sat on the sofa contemplating life. To be honest it had got a bit boring since running Bubba Zanetti and his Hellhounds out of town. It was a fierce battle, a fun battle but now the bad guys were quiet for now and I needed a distraction.
Here’s a mix that I did last year which fits in quite nice with this here blog, it’s called “The Robots Have Infiltrated The World!” Featuring those wonderful metal creations and whether they are Robots, Deus Ex Machina, Automaton, Artificial Intelligence or Cybermen, Cyborg or Android , they will start out friendly and helpful and then one day rise up, destroy us all and take over our world…… Continue reading “The Robots Have Infiltrated The World! – Music Mix Celebrating Robots From Film”→
This 35 minute mix is dedicated to that man with the Smith & Wesson Model 29, 44 Magnum, that legend Clint Eastwood. My good old Dad brought me up with a massive love for all things Clint, starting with The Good The Bad and The Ugly. Then I got to meet that man “Dirty Harry” Callahan and the rest is history.

Well I just passed the Rambo banten on to my son. Having myself watched First Blood as a 13 year old, time had come to pass the burning torch on to my boy, Kofi. Passing the flame of the Rambo origin story to the next generation.
Not going to do a post about First Blood as everyone knows all there is to know but one thing, how could such an anti war film turn into such a macho warmonger machine? Don’t get me wrong I love those too by the way but just saying that end emotional broken man speech scene from Sylvester Stallone really hits the heart strings ….. Anyhoo Continue reading “First Blood (1982) & The Case Of The Moving Panties”→
Nothing beats chilling down to a good movie marathon than the companion of a gallon of beer and a mountain of Memphis pork ribs and French fries. Add to that a jar of the Sweet Baby Ray’s barbecue sauce “The Sauce Is The Boss” to slop all over the plate and you are in business for a tasty times. Yep shit just just got real! HOOOOOwwwwWL
Music to bump your rump and shake your maracas at whilst cooking up your feast goes to Brother Jack McDuff – Hot Barbecue on Prestige Records. Movin and groovin.

Right I’m off for some din dins and contemplate what film to watch tonight. Might have to be a face off, heads and tails coin battle between 5 candidates. All of which I wish to see this weekend. Mind blowing decisions!
At last I found the time to start reading Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill’s magnificent comic book collection The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Needed that perfect moment to delve into the “superhero” world of victorian Britain, and the festive holiday away from work was what I needed. Slippers squeezed onto my massive paws and snuggled on my favourite leather sofa, wolf den curtains closed, bit of mood lighting and a large bourbon on the rocks. Yep this was the right moment. Oh my how much am I enjoying this book. It’s so beautifully crafted. Continue reading “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen”→
